This picture is particularly beautiful with the royal blue robe featuring gold fleur de lis.
Traditionally the fleur de lis has been associated with royalty, specifically French royalty, and in that sense it is said to acknowledge perfection, light, and life. However, France isn’t the only place the Fleur-de-lis has appeared. The popular symbol has graced itself in countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries.The French monarch King Louis VI was the first to use the fleur-de-lis on his shield. This apparently caused English kings to later use the symbol on their coats of arms to legitimize their right to the throne of France.
